The rematch that was 12 years in the making didn’t even last the number in minutes. Goldberg marked his return to the WWE with a stunning victory over Brock Lesnar to remain the only man that the Beast Incarnate has not beaten after defeating him inside two minutes.
WWE’s special event for the month – Survivor Series – saw superstars from Raw and Smackdown Live take on each other in a 5-on-5 elimination match. The highlight though was the return of Goldberg and his clash with Brock Lesnar.
The last time Goldberg was in the ring was Wrestlemania XX and then, he had defeated Lesnar. This time around the dominance was unprecedented. Lesnar did not mount any offence at all as Goldberg first pushed Lesnar down on the mat and then proceeded to hit him with two spears and then pinned Lesnar after delivering his signature finishing move – Jack Hammer.
While fans inside the Air Canada Centre revelled in Goldberg’s return, those watching around the world fumed at such a one-sided match that had gone through nearly two months of build-up, only to end in less than two minutes without Lesnar laying a finger on Goldberg.
